    I have been working at Caltrans full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Been here over a year. Came from private industry. Everyone is friendly and professional. Great training programs to focus on fostering good employees unlike the bottom line of private companies. Great management as well who do not micro manage my work. Great work/life balance and a genuine feeling of positive work for the public (even though the public may not see it that way). Many opportunities to be involved with projects and grow. I hear it's pretty normal to have employees who work for 20-30 years, which is a sign that the pay and organization is worth it. Lots of ways to motivate employees and build camaraderie.

    Cons

    Some co-workers are not as focused as others but as long as it is not creating a hostile work environment, I'm okay with it. Took a paycut working for the State and hope it be worth it in the end. My career track is not the highest paying unlike the engineers. Anyone who aspire to become a high-level manager level should have engineering experience (makes sense since this is a transportation agency).
